Jerry Jones expects Felix Jones to be a 15-carry RB

SportsDay DFW - [Full Article]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked how he feels about Felix Jones:

"Think that he's having an outstanding camp. Have always thought that he ought to carry the ball more. Think he will. Think he'll get the ball more out in space. Last year, he played well. He didn't have injury. I think that anytime he gets the ball, he gives us a chance to make the big play. If Felix has a good year, mark this, we'll have a good year."

He was then asked whether or not Jones was a 20-25 carry RB or a 15-carry RB:

"Do you want to call his screen passes or any of his work out of the passing game carries? I think he's a guy who will touch the ball the latter number rather than the earlier number."

Fantasy Impact: 

We'd like to see Jones get 15-20 touches (carries + catches). If he does, he'll be a sneaky RB2, especially in PPR leagues. It sounds like the Cowboys expect him to get around 15 carries, but it's not clear if that counts his work in the passing game.
